When I found out by the math that you can have a slight natural ruffle on the bottom and top, well that was music in my head. Ruffles and colorwork! Oh yes please and thank you!
I chose Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in a muted tone of red and green (color ways Hollyberry and Aurora Heather) to give it a classic feel and hopefully allow you to wear it into January. (Because who takes down their tree directly after Christmas?)
There is, of course, more than one way to wear it.
This cowl is dedicated to the memory of my mother, who loved a red cowl and kept Christmas well.
You can find this pattern in my Ravelry and Craftsy stores. Hopefully it will be coming to Knit Picks soon. Enjoy!
